Paragraph 3: We only got it for 830 dollars, we super super happy we won it because there is a forest and a park by our new house. We were finding a house because Lachlan did not get in pukaranga college.

Fractured fairy tale

 My Reflection: I was learning to write a narrative. First I had to watch a video, read some examples and think about fairy tales I know. Next I had to complete a writing frame to generate my ideas. I thought it was interesting because it made me think really deeply about what makes a story interesting and how to hook a reader in. I liked the framework as it let me put my thoughts in a clear order and helped me know what to put into my narrative as a whole. After I had generated my ideas I had to create the introduction to the narrative. I chose to share my learning by completing the logical order activity.  I thought it was easy after I read the information about the structure of a narrative. My next step is to use what I have learnt to write my own narrative.

Chapter 2- Kensuke's kindom

My Reflation 
I was learning how to use diagrams and labels to understand and interpret information.  We had to research facts about one of the animals that Michael and his family saw.  I chose the porpoise because I hadn’t heard of it before.  Now I know it’s like a dolphin.  It was easy to find the information I needed to complete the diagram.  I think it’s easier to understand a diagram than it is to read about it.  My next step is to use diagrams when I need to explain something.
